I'm sure the Ilitch children will still be able to feed their families.
Why in the world does any team ever sign these mega contracts? Practically every single team that signed a FA to a mega contract has regretted it almost instantly and many of them have eaten a fair amount of money to move them off their team. So again, why do they keep signing these guys? You'd think at some point the market would collapse on these guys.
Sure, but pizza pizza every night gets tiresome.
Alfonso Soriano is available.

Source: Detroit will be sending $30 million to Texas in the Prince Fielder deal.
The first time this happened a bear was in my neighborhood. The second time it was arson and the people in the house on fire had multiple assault rifles (all legal it turned out).
I confess I don't really get this trade from the Tigers POV
Ah, so we've got pizza snobs here.
Jon Heyman @JonHeymanCBS
Prince trade an mvp boost for @Trouty20 Miggy walkfest may commence. Braun/Cabrera won 3 combined mvps w/Prince protection
So, when's the last time two players this good were traded for one another? 8 All-Star games between the two of them.
How does adding $81M in salary put Texas in position to bid for Cano? When they just solved their IF logjam?

Fielder has a bizzare body, but all reports are that he works out and tries to keep in shape. Is he still vegetarian?
None of those guys was anywhere near as fat as Prince Fielder. The only remotely comparable player was Mo Vaughn, whose legs collapsed under his weight at 32. And even he wasn't as fat as Prince Fielder.
Fielder is going to be finished as a useful player by 34, tops.
